A capsule wardrobe is all about getting organized. Essentially it is a game plan to make it easier for you to shop for clothing, get dressed for the day, and change fashion with the seasons. Everyone wants to look pretty and feel fabulous. You might love wearing clothes, but not necessarily shopping for them. A capsule wardrobe is ideal for those of us who want to spend less time and money on clothes and accessories. Do you stand in front of your closet crammed full of dresses, skirts, and tops, and think, “I have nothing to wear?” Then a capsule wardrobe might be the answer you’re looking for.

From bold colours to animal prints to maxi dresses, this year, spring fashions are characterized by classic looks that let you put your own stamp on them.
Society typically defines femininity through gender-specific roles, values, and behaviours. If we’re intelligent, assertive, strong, or independent, we’re not feminine. When we like to rewire the kitchen, fix a transmission or participate in extreme sports, we’re not feminine. But in today’s every-changing social environment, is there really one definitive definition? Whether you’re spending time on your own or with girlfriends or with that special someone, ways to celebrate femininity this Valentine’s Day are as individual and feminine as you are.
Our closets tell the story of our busy lives – sportwear for spending more time at the gym, business lunches, romantic dinners, summer sandals, and winter boots. But our closets can also be a haven for abandoned clothing that no longer adds to our quality of life. Good reasons to weed your wardrobe in the New Year include the opportunity to reinvent yourself, become better organized, and get rid of items taking up space that could be put to better use.
